and house members on syrian intelligence tomorrow in washington. officials were expected to lay out plans for military action against the assad regime. the head of the meeting, it is important that lawmakers ask tough questions of the president. for example, both iran and syria will attack israel if the u.s. launches a military attack. if it happens, how will the administration respond? will they help our closest ally in the region? finally, what is the end game if assad's regime is toppled? is there a possibility al qaeda-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people in re
in psychology of fear which you wrote about in the "the washington post" this week. america's chronic overreaction to terrorism, we have created an economy of fear, an industry of fear, a national psychology of fear. al qaeda could have never achieved that on its own. we have inflicted it on ourselves. >> fundamentally, there are two sets of questions that apply in the war against terrorism. the one set of questions deals with the where's it going to happen, what's going to happen, and when is it going to happen. the other set of questions deals with what is it that our enemy, the terrorists, are trying to achieve? what are they trying to induce us to do? take a look at what's been happening over the past week. with a conference call, al qaeda has effectively shut down 20 u.s. embassies around north africa and the middle east. we just had the president of yemen here for a meeting with president obama. he goes back feeling wonderful about his new relationship with the president. next thing the president does is says in effect, sorry, but we don't trust you yemenis to protect your embas

. >>> good evening from washington, d.c., i'm ezra klein in for the terrific chris hayes, tonight on all in, the cold war may be over, but it doesn't feel like it's all that over. it's getting chilly actually. from the edward snowden situation to russia's treatment of gayes and lesbians, u.s./russia relationship is on the rocks. >>> we're learning about another terror plot that was foiled. what do new york city and detroit have in common? bankruptcy. all that is ahead. do you remember this little hot mic slip during the election. >> this is my last election. >> yeah. >> after my election, i have more flexibility. >> i will transmit this information. it is such a great line. and people thought at the time, it was a big scandal. people thought they knew what it meant. president obama was secretly telling dmitri medvedev to ignore all the election year politics, it's just politics. after that, the u.s. and russia could be great friends. maybe that wasn't it, maybe the flexibility he was speaking about was a great insult. a yo mama joke, perhaps, that would better explain what has happened sinc
, peter. >> pete williams reporting for us in washington, d.c. pete, thank you very much for that. >>> joining us now for more on that situation that we started our broadcast with in egypt is harvard university's nicholas burns. he is the former u.s. ambassador to nato and a global correspondent. gentlemen, thanks for being with us. steve, i want to begin with you if i can. the tension, the frustration has been brimming in cairo and across egypt. how much worse do things get during the following month-long state of emergency? this is really the situation that many people had feared and it really has the potential to become a prolonged civil war. >> i think we've just gone over a very serious cliff. you have the resignation of the vice president, a muslim brotherhood source of mine says that the death count is well above the 149 that has just been announced, and, you know, we just had john mccain and lindsey graham in egypt, both communicating with the command staff, general al si si and others about trying to encourage them to move to a more inclusive process and if that didn't ha
the highs, however. diana joins us from washington to sort it all out. hi, diana. >> hey, tyler. you're right, it does seem like a disconnect. first to the sentiment numbers, homebuilder sentiment index, up three points for august. that's the fourth straight month of gains despite rising interest rates. of the three index components, current sales up 3 points. future sales expectations up one point. only buyer traffic seems to be lagging here unchanged and still in the negative territory. this, as we heard, the homebuilder stocks up today but well off their highs. you can see the housing index is now in bare market territory over 20% from its high on may 20. d.r. horton is now at a one-year low. why the disconnect? they are rated much more to the private buildings. they're seeing big demand because of lack of existing supply and demand on the market. they say interest rates are not hitting them that high. of course, it's a huge run-up in the stocks before a recovery really took hold. some said they were, in fact, overheated before then, and now that you have rising interest rates in
, the "washington post's" pulitzer prize-winning columnist eugene robinson and republican strategist rick tyler. gene, what would be your response to senator paul when he says show me the objective evidence of disenfranchisement? >> well, i'd say the evidence is pretty evident. there is that m.i.t. study about how long minorities had to wait to vote as opposed to whites. you already have a system that puts added burdens on minorities who would like to vote. then you add on top of that voter i.d. requirements, which we know are going to disproportionately affect minorities, and you end up with i think plenty of evidence that these laws have the effect if not the intent of turning african-americans away from the polls. >> gene, when i say to folks this is a solution in search of a problem, they often respond to me by saying how do you know there's not more fraud taking place but people are getting away with it? you can't prove it if they're getting away with it. >> well, no, but you'd think this they get caught every once in a while. you'd think that there would certainly be more instances of imp

, bill, it's going to come down that decision right as washington is dealing with the fiscal standoff that we got coming on and that could provide an added wrinkle because larry summers, without doubt will be confirmed if nominated by the president but might be more difficult and more static than janet yellen and the president has to figure out how much political capital he wants to invest in that. >> indeed. john harwood, good job. thank you. >>> we do have a confluence of events coming this fall, ron not only choosing the new fed chair but the debt ceiling is still to be dealt with, the budget. obama care will have to be coming up in many areas. a lot of things to be dealt with all at the same time that will have a meaningful impact. >> the fed stuff is central. larry summers has voiced to a certain extent and this came back his distaste to quantitative easing. look, if i had to do it, i have a dream speech about the fed right now, ben bernanke staying for a third term. larry summers is known to be a bull in the china shop. there's a much different process in the fed than there migh
back on august 21st with that alleged chemical weapons attack. >> ayman, thank you. back in washington we have lieutenant colonel anthony schafer, a senior fellow and external communications director at the center for advanced studies and perry bacon, political editor at the grio. colonel, i feel like there's a number of variables in the situation. help me understand what you think are the more important dynamics and what dynamics, if any, i'm completely missing out on. i think we have to consider the impact of iraq/afghanistan, that the country is in a sort of war fatigue. i think we have to consider russia, assad's key ally, as somebody holding us back from acting. i think we have to consider the rebels are not exactly people we may want to be working with. we don't know who the next dictator will be if we support them. also, just being the world's policemen has not gotten us as far as we'd like it to. what dynamics are a part of this? >> all of the above. there's a no-win scenario. it's really nowhere to go. the idea is we've decided to do something. what should that be? this is --
